This is the first time I've ever been able to say that... "back to school."
Today is Calder's first day back. First grade. And such a different start compared to last year, all confidence and knowing. He's quite a guy.
There's also tons of things I'd like to lay down here about how we've spent our last weeks of real summer - our first summer sandwiched between school years. I hope to do the time warp and take this journal backwards. We've had such great experiences, I can't imagine not sharing our annual campout at Waldo Lake and stories of last weekend's 3-day float on the Willamette. I'll try to get to all this soon.
But for today we have the boy and his little brother... just right.
